Forum on Woodforde Land Division produces key outcomes

On 12 May 2016 Adelaide Hills Council hosted a Woodforde Land Division Information Forum at Rostrevor College. Over 120 people attended, including Council Members and staff from Adelaide Hills and Campbelltown City Councils, the Department for Planning Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI), the Morialta Residents Association, and Rostrevor College. John Gardner, State Member for Morialta, and Vincent Tarzia, State Member for Hartley, were also present.

This forum was arranged in response to the high level of interest generated at Council's Community Forum held at Rostrevor on 12 March, 2016.

The Forum commenced with three presentations, which provided the background and current status of the Woodforde Development, gave an overview of the landscaping proposal for reserve areas within the development, and opened discussions on potential traffic management issues arising from the development.

Attendees then broke into small groups to initiate detailed conversations on these topics. These conversations predominantly summarised traffic and stormwater management, and use of open spaces, as well as a number of other specific queries (outlined in the complete minutes, above).

As a result of this Forum, Adelaide Hills Council resolved to engage in discussions with the developers, DPTI, Campbelltown City Council, and City of Burnside to seek funding contributions towards a jointly funded Local Area Traffic Management Plan (LATMP).

Should the development of a LATMP progress, the participating parties will work with the community and traffic management experts to develop a better understanding of the issues and potential solutions.

Conversations are underway with key parties in the interest of the best possible collaborative outcome.
